SCHOOL NOTES A Lent Term with plenty of cold weather and snow has seen the hockey and ski creases working overtime. The first hockey team is playing in a local league and doing nicely under Gerry Wiggett ' s coaching. The line-up is Bill Price in goal, Sheppard, and Hampson on defence. Bono Pitfield as centre of first line with Trev Evans (Capt) and Pete Aird as wings, while the second line is made up of Finley or Lemieux, centre, with McBoyle and Morkill as wings. In case some readers who have only just left the School come out with the usual "Those little shrimps on the first team? What's the School coming to?" remark, we might remind them that shrimps grow and the first six mentioned are now over six feet - probably the heaviest first line we have had for years. The LCC match should have been played by now, but had to be postponed, and will probably take place with the Ashbury game next week . The first ski team cleaned up in the Eastern Townships Inter- scholastic Meet at North Hatley, Johnny Tyler winning the individual trophy and the team getting the cup for the best teem score among some five schools. The junior team came second in its division, and one of its members, Boyd, won the junior individual trophy. The ski platoon complete with parkas, packs, skis home-made snowshoes, is one of three platoons from E.T. Schools taking part in a scheme at North Hatley in a few days, and is supplying the Company Commander for the event. Mr. Moffat of Chapman House is the father of a new daughter, Barbara Ann, while Mr. Patriquin of Williams House is the father of a new son, David Graham. The Players' Club is producing Ian Hay's play "Housemaster" on March 3rd.... tickets and programmes are being printed on the School's own presses, now in operation in Mr. Pattison's basement under the expert guidance of Mr. Pattison and Mr. Sauerbrei, the Chaplain. The scope of Cadet Training has been enlarged, and there are now classes on the regular timetable for such studies as signalling, first aid, map reading, and the internal combustion engine. While a new questionnaire will be sent out, as soon as the press can get it printed, to all possible home addresses of old Boys' who may be on Active Service, please do not hesitate to send us news of yourself and other Old Boys whom you may have run into. . . . address such notes to The Editor, BCS Bulletin, and you will be helping not only to supply material for this bulletin, but also in the compilation of the School War Book and the Old Boys' Notes in the Midsummer issue of the School Magazine.. Keep us up to date in such matters as your unit, rank and promotions, and any other items that can be told without hurting the censor's feelings. ABOVE ALL, if you meet any Old Boys who are not receiving this Bulletin, send us their address, or get them to do so. Since writing these notes it has been brought to our attention that Lt . G. Harley has recently acquired a wife.
